By Little Wing Puppets

An original Australian work for families combining shadow puppetry and physical comedy, Spike is the story of an echidna, stolen from his nest, and found by a lonely little girl.

The girl helps the echidna discover where he belongs, and the echidna helps the girl find her own ‘spikes’ and stand up to bullies.
